The Wilderness Wedding Photography

The stunning Wilderness Wedding Photography of Hayley & Charlie in July 2019. This brilliant and enchanting outdoor idyllic wilderness wedding venue near Canterbury, Kent really is one of the hidden gems in the wedding industry, unspoilt and far from the crowds.

The Wilderness is a stunning venue that comes with 2 licensed ceremony areas right on a lake, wildflower meadows, glamping and 3 giant hat tipis pitched in the middle of the woods. As you will see from the pictures below, it is a magical wedding venue.

Hayley & Charlie are a brilliant couple who I instantly clicked. From the first moment I met them at their home, I knew this would be a special wedding. They have a wonderful family and their wedding really reflected all of their true personalities. I feel like I’ve known them for years and must thank them for making my job of documenting their big day a real pleasure.

I must thank David at Rideout Films for recommending me to Hayley & Charlie. If you’re looking for a videographer for your own wedding day you can see his truly exceptional work here Rideout Films. As always a big thank-you to Anna and all the Wilderness Wedding Venue staff. Their continued care and attention to detail ensure every wedding runs perfectly at The Wilderness and their other venue Preston Court.

Wilderness Wedding in July 2019

Kind words from the couple:-

“Matt was recommended to us by our videographer and having not had a meeting with a photographer before we were not sure what to expect but as soon as Matt arrived at our home he immediately made us feel at ease. He was easy to deal with leading up to the wedding and always very informative.

I always feel a bit awkward having photos taken so was worried about having photos taken all day at the wedding but I needn’t have worried as on the day itself Matt (and David from Rideout Films) made it fun. Matt gave brilliant direction and we basically had a laugh which is what you want. He’s the sort of guy you’d want as a friend 🙂 Matt has produced some amazing photos of our special day, he really knows his stuff and what works.

Thanks so much Matt for giving us photos for our wall that we will forever cherish.
